The Outreach team manages 38 units of supported housing across the Bolton borough. They are fully decorated, furnished and equipped to support independence. Young people who are homeless but still need help can live here and receive support from this team of community outreach support workers. This was the original Backup service.
Young people aged 16-25 years are supported to move in, manage the property and move on at the appropriate time. The aim is that after a period of time, the young person moves into their own secure accommodation having acquired the skills and the knowledge and independence required to manage on their own.
Whilst the young person lives on the scheme they will be provided with a support package that is designed for them.
